Southaven/Hernando, MS

"Nice suburb in MS, big yards and reasonably priced, close to shopping and entertainment. About a 25 minute drive to work, interstate, no traffic."

- Rachel Richardson (Med/Peds Chief 2013-2014)

"I highly recommend Southaven, MS in general for families. Lots of new houses going up. 4 BRs in the 130-160 range. Deer Chase subdivision on the SW corner of Goodman and Getwell is where we live and worth a look. We used Kim Finney (662) 902-6319), who is licensed in both TN and MS and really liked her."

Snowden Grove Amphitheatre

Southaven, Mississippi, childhood home of author John Grisham, is an outlying suburb of Memphis located at the very top of the Mississippi state border that some of our residents have decided to call home. Rachel Richardson, one of our previous med-peds chiefs, cites the good public schools and proximity to all amenities, including shopping, as a couple of reasons for living in Southaven.

Cost of living is also very appealing, and despite being in Mississippi, the commute is still within a half hour to the hospitals. Snowden Grove Amphitheatre, a large outdoor concert venue, recently had acts from Dave Matthews Band, Weezer, Kenny Chesney, and Willie Nelson. Southaven is home to the Mississippi Riverkings, a professional minor league ice hockey team. The Dizzy Dean World Series (youth baseball and softball) is held in Southaven.
